I HATE YOU! No, Wait… I Think I Love You. Right?

21 Mar

 This is probably just me, (like always) but I am having these ridiculous mood swings with my manuscript. At least that’s what I think you’d call them. Is their any other name for it? Nope, mood swings is as close as it gets.

I’m not sure if it’s happening because I’m drawing toward the end of my first draft, and I’m going to have trouble detaching (because I will, it happens EVERY time). Or, maybe it’s just because I’m coming up against the fact that it needs SO much work. Gosh my stomach is rolling just thinking about it. (Excuse me a second while I go find a bucket and a few breathe mints.)

Anyway, I’m having a love/hate battle with myself, at the moment.

Yesterday, everything was all hunky-dory (please be kind enough to excuse the dorky language) I was on a roll. My Muse was cooperating; my conflict’s close was just in sight and…. BAM! Next thing I know I’m staring into the bottomless hole of impending editing, being laughed at by the NYT bestsellers list.

I have issues. You don’t have to tell me, I already know.

Anyone else Hate/Love their WIP right now?

    I am having the same love hate issues with my wip right now. In the editing stage I am rewriting the first chapter and I love/hate the process!

    But if I didn’t go through the hating, I think the loving part wouldn’t be so much fun.

    (Yeah, I am trying to stay positive, but I don’t know if it worked or not.) 😉

    Ah yes, I know the love-hate relationship with one’s manuscript very, very well. Sigh

    This is normal. I think it is because we all dread the editing process. At least I know that why I hate all my manuscripts. You just have to enjoy the writing process while it lasts and then grit your teeth and edit. Once I get in the swing of editing I can actually have fun with it because I see my story getting better and better.

      Yeah that’s true. Though I LOVE editing. Like you said its getting there and realizing that it will become better that is the fun part. The hashing it out seems to bog me down though.
